Year-End Contributions to a Fund

Gifts of Securities (stocks, bonds, mutual funds): Consider using appreciated stock to start or add to your Donor Advised Fund. You may avoid capital gains and receive a tax receipt for the full market value. Please plan early though! Call our finance department at (858) 279-2740 or email us for more information.

Gifts of Cash: Checks must be U.S. Mail postmarked by December 30 and credit card gifts must be submitted online here before midnight on December 31 to receive a tax receipt for the same calendar year.
